Surfboard collection to help the less fortunate

VIRGINIA BEACH — Have an old surfboard hanging or laying around that’s just kind of in the way? Want to express your love of surfing by sharing with someone who is less fortunate?

Now’s your chance.

Coastal Edge and Vans, along with pro surfers the Gadauskas brothers, are collecting surf boards, which will then be donated to the less fortunate in Trinidad and Tobago.

The main collection will happen on the beach during the East Coast Surfing Championship Friday, from 12-4 p.m.

Past surfboard drives collected hundreds of boards that have gone to future surfers in places like Jamaica and Africa.

Those who donate will also receive a free pair of Vans.

If you have a board to donate but can’t get to the main collection, you can take it to any Coastal Edge location.
